Ice Cube still working on NWA Biopic
After almost a year since the announcement that he was going to produce a biopic of his erstwhile NWA crew, news has surfaced that John Singleton is in talks to direct.
Although nothing is set in stone at the moment Singleton has previously worked with Ice Cube on the movie Boyz N the Hood, so they have worked together previously, so assuming that all went to plan behind the scenes then I can’t see any reason why he wouldn’t put pen to paper and sign up to direct.
The film Straight Outta Compton was last known to be in the hands of Andrea Berloff, who wrote World Trade Centre, but this has apparently changed and it is now in the hands of S Leigh Savidge and Alan Wenkus.
Since the film has been in production for over a year and has only just announced that it is finally in discussion with a director, there has been no mention of casting yet so that should be interesting. I’m guessing a young up and coming rapper will take the lead in this one, but only time will tell.
